"a Forest Giant", Michal Matczak (2D)



Title: "a Forest Giant"
Name: Michal Matczak
Country: Poland
Software: Painter, Photoshop

Done in 4 days, a couple of hours each day. Tried to follow Neville Page's workflow and his attention to details from his Gnomon DVD on rendering Wildebeast. It's really hard, I did my best, though... :(
I tried to keep it sketchy look, yet kinda finished, not to overbalance it with too much details, too.
Any comments and/or advices would be much appreciated. :)


EDIT: Added some textures, a background and some retouching, tried to make it look more finished. Hope you like it.

nice, but i think his head is too small compared with the rest of his body. And as you said a jungle background would probably be good too...

BlinCk - thanks

packinpah - you're right, I overdid it. I wanted to add the scale to it, so he would look enormous. I'll be corrected in the update. Thanks.

Cool, to see u finish, this piece! I would work on the ape more though, try to get the anatomy right, but it seems convincing, I like the treatment of the background, overall compo is really good, Nice!
